Red Velvet Skillet Brownie

 

You’re probably getting bored with all the red velvet, but with Valentine’s Day still a few weeks away, I’m afraid the red is here to stay for a bit longer.

I LOVE red. My house has red accents in pretty much every room, I love red nail polish, when I was younger red was my signature lip color, and I am eagerly awaiting my red front front door.

It’s the only cake I like

it makes one seriously gorgeous hot cocoa

and you already know how I feel about brownies.

I made red velvet brownies last year for Valentine’s Day, and wanted to try something a little different this year. I have used ย my skillet to make cookies, but never brownies. This seemed like the perfect time to test it out.

I tweaked my past recipe a bit {what made me think it was a good idea to use a whole bottle of red food coloring}, reducing the coloring, butter, and sugar, and the end result was even more delicious – albeit not nearly as red, but that’s okay, you can’t see the red if the brownie is buried under a mountain of vanilla ice cream.
